Have you ever felt like God was trying to talk to you in a little way? I know He’s in my life constantly; He always seems to be with me in my darkest times. I can sense His presence deep in my heart. Sometimes, though, He comes in simple ways instead of big ones.
One night I was coming home from a particularly tough volleyball practice. I didn’t play that well that night and I felt like I had hit a wall I couldn’t climb. I was doubting I had any talent at all in the sport and I was starting to lose faith in myself. I was so upset that I was regretting the sport I loved with all of my heart.
I was sitting in the car staring into the black night with a single tear rolling down my face, feeling like I was all alone, when suddenly a song started playing on the radio. It was “Don’t You Worry Child” by Swedish House Mafia. I was shocked. When the lyrics started to play and I heard “Don’t you worry child, see heaven’s got a plan for you,” I was speechless.
I felt like God was speaking to me though the radio and the lyrics of the song. I was filled with faith in God and I felt his love for me. I knew He believed in me and I didn’t have any reason to give up anymore, because I knew God would always help me through my hard times.
That night, I learned that God was always there and He always will be. I love volleyball and I still play my best every day because I know God believes in me. If God hadn’t spoken to me that one night, I don’t know where I would be today.
I still hit walls every day, but I use my faith in God to help me overcome them. I think you should look for God everywhere because He is there, in small ways, and big ones. And He always will be.
